I hope you slept good this week and got all rested up from the Tillman County Free Fair because we have more fun things to do in Frederick! Yes, we are in our second consecutive week of activities for everyone.
This week has been Spirit Week at the local schools leading up to Homecoming Friday night. But before we play football we must have a Homecoming parade. The parade is set for 1 pm on Friday in downtown Frederick. If you are not in the parade please make sure you come down and cheer on those who are. Parades are always so much more fun when the crowd is as excited as the entries. The parade will begin around 8th & Grand Ave. and end up at the Bomber Hangar for the Pep Rally. Everyone is welcomed to attend and help cheer on our kiddos.
But wait, there’s more! In addition to our kids in the Frederick Public Schools celebrating we will have the Frederick All Class Reunion going on. This means if you graduated from Frederick High School then you are invited. There will be a meet and greet at the Frederick Golf & Country Club Friday after the game. On Saturday folks can gather in the Blue Room of the Grand Hotel to visit between Arts ‘N Action and all the places to see in Frederick. A brisket dinner will be held at the Country Club starting at 6, cost is $15 at the door. Afterward the Toby Sheffield band will play, cost is $5. The Country Club will also be holding a golf tournament Saturday so give them a call at 335-2911 if you are interested.
Now let’s talk Arts ‘N Action. I just received the press release from the Frederick Arts & Humanities Council listing all of the art vendors, food vendors and entertainment, let me just say I am more excited than I already was. There are 29 artists, 8 food booths, entertainment from 10 am to 2 pm and a kid zone. It’s going to be a great day in Frederick Oklahoma and I sincerely hope you get out and enjoy it.
The Pioneer Townsite will be open as well as the Crawford Collection on Saturday as well as many of our restaurants and shops. Weekends such as this are a great help to our local economy and business owners so please make sure you Shop Frederick and encourage those you know from out of town to come down and do the same.
Don’t forget: Be Kind. Be Heard. Be Local.
